The Fourth Annual Global Peace Workshop 2016 focuses on understanding the vulnerabilities and resilience of people living through conflict. Our goals are to examine how people experience exclusion, discrimination and marginalisation including threats to their physical, economic and social security to understand how resilience helps them cope as best they can. We often assume that the impact of violence is indiscriminate, yet it actually affects people differently according to their levels of vulnerability and resilience. Understanding this is critical to responding to conflict in ways that support people’s efforts and does not erode their resilience.
In partnership with Mugla Sitki Kocman University and Coventry University Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, GPW2016 is the 4th in its series. In these workshops academics and practitioners will guide participants through the key issues that emerge from each theme in fast-paced, interactive sessions that are fun and engaging. Each year the workshop grows in experience and gains more international media attention. In 2016 we’re expecting up to 120 participants to join the programme, together with our team of inspirational keynote speakers, workshop leaders and volunteers.
